The Xiaoshao Canal to the southwest of this case is a world cultural heritage. The designers came across egrets while viewing the plot. In concert with the local culture, the design draws the characteristics of water waves and egrets and, in a three-dimensional way, forms an abstract summary of the natural waterfront elements. It uses white stones, light stainless steel, and water grain glass to convey the "pure, extreme and light" beauty of the space, giving a sense of classic.
